I am beyond excited about the upcoming Disney release of The Great & Powerful Oz. The Wizard of Oz is still one of my all time favourite movies and I have no doubt this prequel will answer some of my many questions about that magical original cinematic masterpiece. The fact it stars James Franco is just the cherry on top of a very large ice cream sundae. But leaving that aside for the moment, I am now even more excited to hear that the next movie alignment for OPI will in fact be this Disney hit-to-be. That’s right, there will be a nail polish collection for The Great & Powerful Oz …. and I have the first look, sneak peek for you today!  Continue Reading

On Saturday I showed you the first glimpse of Mariah Carey’s upcoming nail polish collection with OPI. This is the first of two collections she will be creating with the mega nail brand and today I am super excited to show you the bottle images for the entire 8-piece collection.

Mariah Carey by OPI

Not a thrilling name but the Mariah Carey by OPI Collection (part 1) does contain some thrilling shades. The collection is broken down into two parts. The first are the Studio Shades which includes 1 dazzling glitter, 1 shimmer and 2 creme nail polishes. The second part are the Stage Shades, which I showed you on Saturday and feature the innovative new Liquid Sand texture.

Here are the official descriptions by OPI of the new shades.  Continue Reading

I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of Mariah Carey or her music. I was more in to rock music during her heyday and I found her squealing to be a little irritating. Having said that, now that she is collaborating with OPI on her own nail polish collection that may just change my opinion of her.

The first image has just been released showing Liquid Sand, one uniquely textured subcategory to her collection. In August, WWD reported that Mariah Carey had signed on for two collections. The first collection is scheduled to be released globally in January and includes eight new shades. The second collection is scheduled for later in 2013 but the number of shades are yet to be announced.

Today OPI released the following image showing four of the new nail polishes slated to come out this January. Liquid Sand has been dubbed as OPI’s latest innovation, and describes itself as a matte glitter texture. It sounds super strange to me but I can’t wait to get my hands on some to play with.   Continue Reading

Professional beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries shares her personal blogger burnout story and experience

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series about my personal experience with Blogger Burnout – My Demise + My Recovery + My Future

I started The Plastic Diaries in 2008, became a full-time blogger in 2010 and vanished from the blogging universe in 2015. Where did I go? Why? What happened to me? These are questions that have been asked of me during my 18+ month disappearance. The short answer was blogger burnout – a rarely spoken of condition that is fast becoming a serious concern amongst the influencer industry. Have you ever followed a blogger and notice that one day they have just disappeared? Their blog stopped posting new content, their social media went untouched – it happens often. In my almost 9 years of blogging I have lost count of the bloggers that have come and gone, most of which I have no idea why or where they went.

Upon my return to blogging at the end of last year I’ve put off explaining what exactly occurred in my life. I confided in a few select friends and trusted individuals about my story but I’ve brushed over it with the wider community by saying the cause was “personal stuff”. I don’t believe bloggers owe anyone an explanation when they disappear but I know that when my favourites have gone AWOL I’ve missed them and been concerned for their wellbeing. I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
